DAVE ALLENBY WAS A LONDON-BORN COCKNEY COMEDIAN, SINGER AND ACTOR WHO CAME TO SETTLE IN OZ IN 1970. HE WAS HIRED AS A SUPPORT ACT FOR THE BEACH BOYS WHEN THEY WERE ON THE LAST LEG OF THEIR WORLD TOUR.

BEFORE ARRIVING IN OZ HE HAD U.K. CHART SUCCESS WITH HIS FIRST SINGLE “WHERE HAS THE LOVE GONE”. IN ENGLAND DAVE HAD PERFORMED WITH: ROY ORBISON, THE EVERLY BROTHERS, BILLY ECKSTEIN, ROGER WHITTAKER, THE HOLLIES, CILLA BLACK, AND OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN…THE LIST IS ENDLESS.

HE IS STILL PERFORMING LIVE CABARET IN OZ AND OFTEN TEAMS WITH ROD HULL & EMU TO DO SHOWS ON THE CLUB CIRCUIT.

HIS OZ HITS INCLUDE: “SHE WORKS IN A WOMAN’S WAY”, “SWEET GINGERBREAD MAN” AND “SAIL AWAY”. NONE OF WHICH HAVE BEEN PUT ONTO C.D. AS FAR AS I KNOW. HIS FIRST HIT WAS BACKED BY SYDNEY BAND “THE AUTUMN” AND PRODUCED BY BARRY MCASKILL.
